Seriously, how stupid do you think we all are? I’ve been doing professional development since 1985 and doing it full time since ‘87. Do you really think that I and thousands of others can’t tell when something works and it doesn’t? I did HTML when the only browser was NCSA Mosaic and ASP websites to build DevGames.com and then later GameDev.net in 1999. That was painful. I can tell the freaking difference people. This works and it works well. I might not pick it for building the next version of eBay because it wouldn’t stand up to the load, but I would pick it for building the early versions of the next site that will become as big as eBay because it will offer that site lots of fast growth and flexibility.
